HKS Intercooler Piping Kit 2017+ Honda Civic Type R
Stock plastic or rubber intercooler pipes can expand or crack under high boost levels. In addition to this, stock pipes have many bends which in some places are very tight radius which causes much resistance and pressure drop.
HKS Piping kits are made of aluminum for increased durability and safety. The pipes have been redesigned to decrease the number of bends and to increase bend radius to minimize pressure loss and flow resistance.
Aluminum Pipes Increase Durability and Safety: Higher durability than the stock plastic pipes and increased safety can prevent possible damage to the pipe.
Aluminum Pipes Improve Engine Response: Highly durable aluminum pipes prevent pipes' deforming under high boost pressure and intake air expansion and compression so the engine response can be improved.
Buff, Alumite, and Plating Finished Pipes Improve Engine Compartment Appearance: Buff, Alumite, and plating finished aluminum pipes can make the engine compartment appearance more attractive.
Straight Layout and Appropriate Pipes' Radius Minimize Pressure Loss: The pipes have been redesigned to decrease the number of bends and to increase bend radius to minimize pressure loss and flow resistance.
High Pressure Resistant Hoses Improve Intercooler's Performance: Installing high pressure resistance hoses to joint parts can protect the pipes from heat and pressure, so full performance of the intercooler can be brought out.
Similar Layout as Stock Means the Installation Procedure is Very Simple: HKS Piping Kit can be installed as the same layout of the stock piping. So, no complicated installation procedure is required.
